The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution
The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution is an exceptionally stable serum with a direct-acting form of Vitamin C.
Why We Love It
This vitamin C serum is potent but with a low potential for irritation in comparison to other active forms of this antioxidant. This serum boosts radiance and remains stable and affective for longer.
An exceptionally-stable solution of 15% Ethylated Ascorbic Acid, this water-free formula offers a direct-acting approach to achieving a radiant, healthy-looking skin tone. Unlike other Vitamin C derivatives, this ethylated form acts directly like Vitamin C, is closer in molecular weight to actual Vitamin C which allows for faster visible results, and offers a much better stability profile than any known direct-acting form of Vitamin C.
Notes: Since this formulation is a water-free solution, it may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds after application, despite the absence of all oils.
Note: Supplied in UV-protective packaging.
Apply to skin in your AM and/or PM routine daily. Best applied after water based products and before oils and creams.

THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS
ETHYL ASCORBIC ACID
This ingredient is a stabilised form of Vitamin C and is a potent antioxidant, protecting the skin against free radical damage. Ethyl ascorbic acid increases the production of amino acids in the skin, expediting skin cell turnover and boosting collagen production so skin feels smoother and plumper. It disrupts the production of melanin in the skin, thus helping to fade sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
